Achillea Ptarmica


Achillea ptarmica is a European species of herbaceous perennial flowering plant in the genus Achillea of the daisy family Asteraceae. Common names include the sneezewort, sneezeweed, bastard pellitory, European pellitory, fair-maid-of-France, goose tongue, sneezewort yarrow, wild pellitory, and white tansy.[2] It is widespread across most of Europe and naturalized in scattered places in North America.[3][4][5][6] It is native to Europe and western Asia.[7]

Achillea ptarmica has loose clusters of showy white composite flower heads that bloom from June to August. Its dark green leaves have finely toothed margins. Like many other plants, the sneezewort's pattern of development displays the Fibonacci sequence.[8]


Achillea ptarmica, commonly called sneezewort or sneezeweed, is a rhizomatous perennial featuring loose corymbs of small white flowers which bloom throughout summer on plants clad with sessile, linear to lanceolate, finely toothed leaves that are aromatic when crushed. Species plants are native to Europe and western Asia.The genus name Achillea refers to Achilles, hero of the Trojan Wars in Greek mythology, who used the plant medicinally to stop bleeding and to heal the wounds of his soldiers.Specific epithet is from Greek and refers to plants which caused sneezing.The Pearl Group has a profusion of button-like, pure white, 1/2" wide, double flowers resembling pompons in large branched heads on stems up to 2 feet. Excellent cut and dried flower. Tolerant of summer heat and humidity.


For best results, grow Achillea ptarmica 'The Pearl' in full sun in well-drained soil. Cut back faded blooms to prolong flowering. Divide clumps every three to five years, and never allow plants to become waterlogged.


If you're not familiar with Achillea ptarmica, this species is unique from what you'd expect from the classic A. millefolium types. 'Peter Cottontail' has a look that's reminiscent of Baby's Breath, with large, ivory white flowers that are produced over a low, mounding habit of green foliage. Compared to A. millefolium types, the flower clusters on this perennial are more singular and well-spaced-great for adding texture to the garden! Compared to other A. ptarmica types on the market, this perennial has larger individual flowers and a more polished habit. Although this perennial is named after a fictional rabbit, 'Peter Cottontail', it is mostly unbothered by both deer and rabbits.


Bridesmaids at Westountry weddings used to carry posies of Sneezewort in the belief that doing so would ensure a happy life for the bride and groom. Checking the county-by-county divorce rates might show whether Achillea ptarmica is an effective potion in this respect!


Achillea millefolium and Achillea ptarmica are both plants belonging to the Asteracea family and are traditionally used for their medicinal properties. It has already been shown that some N-alkylamides (NAAs) are responsible for these pharmacological actions. Therefore, in the present study, the NAA content of the two plants was analytically characterised. Different extracts were prepared from the roots, the leaves, the stems and the flowers. The structures of NAAs have been assigned in ethanolic extracts of Achillea millefolium and Achillea ptarmica using high performance liquid chromatography - electrospray ionisation - mass spectrometry (HPLC-ESI-MS) and gas chromatography - electron impact - mass spectrometry (GC-EI-MS). Using both analytical techniques, the structures of 14 and 15 NAAs have been assigned in Achillea ptarmica and Achillea millefolium, respectively. Structures of two new NAAs, previously never observed in Achillea ptarmica, were assigned: deca-2E,6Z,8E-trienoic acid 2-methylbutylamide (homospilanthol) or a related isomeric compound and deca-2E,4E-dienoic acid N-methyl isobutylamide. The structure of homospilanthol or a related isomeric compound was also assigned in Achillea millefolium for the first time.


Reminiscent of Baby's Breath, Achillea ptarmica 'Peter Cottontail' (Sneezewort) is a perennial boasting a profusion of white, button-like flowerheads from early to early fall. Attractive to bees and butterflies, the blossoms are produced over a low mound of glossy, dark green, narrowly lance-shaped leaves. Prized for its long blooming season and easy care, this charming sneezewort is perfect for growing in borders, cottage gardens, wild gardens, naturalized areas or meadows. It also makes a wonderful cut flower.


Achillea ptarmica (Sneezewort, Sneezeweed, Bastard Pellitory, European Pellitory, Fair-maid-of-France, Goose Tongue, Sneezewort Yarrow, Wild Pellitory, White Tansy) is a species in the genus Achillea. It has loose clusters of white, button-like flowers that bloom from June to August. Its dark green leaves have finely-toothed margins.

An eye-catching and unusual choice of yarrow quite different in appearance to the classic achillea millefolium. Peter Cottontail has snow-white flowers, with a green-gold eye, in singular clusters. The plant has a rounded uniform habit, above silvery-grey feathery foliage. A bright and fresh alternative to gypsophila. 041b061a72
